Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, and Happy December! 

Brandon's 32nd birthday is Monday, so my in-law's are graciously keeping the boys overnight tonight so we can go out to dinner and maybe a movie. Can't wait to celebrate this handsome guy! 

I shared our family portraits yesterday {you can see them all here}. I'm so excited that we got some that turned out, and I'm also so excited that I got our Christmas cards mailed off earlier this week! 

Thank you again for linking up with Emily, Owen and me on Wednesday to share your gift ideas for men! {You can view mine here.} Next week is our last installment and we're sharing gift ideas for the hostess, as well as stocking stuffers for anyone! All you have to do is link back to us in your post, share our image {below} and link up with us to join. So easy! 

I have mentioned before how I'm pretty obsessed with thredUP and wanted to share my latest find from there: a new with tags J.Crew off-the-shoulder dress (for the summer, of course!) for only $31.99. I had a $13.55 credit, as well as a $6.15 promo discount, making this dress only $12.29 before tax and shipping! Not too shabby! 

If you need a thredUp referral, you can use mine here! When you sign up, you will get a $10 credit to spend and I will get a $10 credit, too. :) 


So I ordered these gummies for Walker {via Amazon Prime, where else?} and I'm hoping they do their magic during this sick season, as they're filled with zinc, Vitamin C and of course, elderberry to help boost that immune system. As my friends and I like to say, "'Tis the season for germs!" Knox is still too young to take them since he's not two yet, but you can bet your bottom dollar I'll be giving them to him once he hits that magical age. 

I shared the yummiest (not exactly prettiest, but yummiest) recipe for Crock Pot Shepherd's Pie on Tuesday. If you missed it, click here to see the recipe! It's perfect for this time of the year, and my kids always ask for seconds when I make it! 

I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend! 

Linking up with: April, Amanda, Andrea, Claire and Katie


  1. Enjoy your kid free night! You deserve it! I need to order those vitamins for the boys, i am wanting to try and combat anything I can against the germs! Have a great weekend friend!

  2. SOME good pictures?? You got a TON! Good work on getting the cards ordered and out already! Want to come and do mine?? ;)
    I wish Ella could take those vitamins now...she and I both could use a boost to our immune systems!

  3. Oh, and happy birthday to Brandon!! Enjoy your date night tonight!

  4. I hope y'all have the best time celebrating Brandon tonight!!!

  5. I've heard about Thred Up but never tried..what a find!!! Thanks for the recommendation!

  6. Those vitamins sound awesome! I need something like that for myself!

  7. I switched my kids to a vitamin with a bit more iron and it has been fabulous for them! I hope you had a great date night. Happy Saturday :)
